  1. I'm sorry you had to go through this, but I will...

    I'm sorry you had to go through this, but I will join the chorus in saying you did the right thing. It is a hard decision to make and harder still to see it through, but it was absolutely the best...

    I'm 5'5" and currently horse shopping. My ideal would be in the 15.3 to 16 hand range, not too big bodied, or smaller in height but bigger bodied. Everything I find is either <14.3 or >16.3. I've...

    I recognize that, but the replacement cost still adds up (and they only cover certain time periods). Nice to know that the OneK goes out 3 years at that lower cost and that can be a factor in one's...

    That's kind of how I did mine - -I used binder clips to place the pleats while blanket was on the horse, and that held them until I got it home to sew up. And I made sure they lined up (left and...

    The compost bins are similar to what we did here -- ours lack the covers and roof, but the idea of having them built into a hill so you dump from above, then remove finished compost from the bottom...

    I'm not sure from the description if this would work, but I have in the past done a small pleat on each side of the neck opening and then stitched that down just on the binding part (so the...

    I've done that - taken horse to vet and horse gets off trailer looking good, and lameness is so slight that further diagnostics had to be put off to another day. If they are only slightly off, so...

    Smartpak is the only one that I can think of that does free shipping both to you and when returning. There are others that ship for free, but return shipping would be on you.

    My vet has been really good about letting me text or e-mail him a photo and saying, yes, need to come see it, or, no, just cold hose/wrap/whatever... And he never charges me for those consultations...

    Some of mine have alternated between dunking and not dunking depending on the type of hay. The one will dunk the coarser grass but won't bother with the soft, pliable hay. The other one doesn't...

    I'm also a big fan of the Ovation helmets. But I suppose it depends on what fits you best, so trying them on is really the best way to know. I have had the Extreme (I think it is called) and the Z-8...

    There is further information on the measurements in the Q&A section on the SP listing for these - that might help to decide if they are tall enough. The reviews are kind of mixed on there, but since...

    We did a retaining wall for our arena, as we live on a hill and the only way to get a large enough level area for the ring was to cut into the hill somewhat. Ours is poured concrete, 4' tall on the...

    I don't know if it came any smaller -- mine was a 5.5" if you measured just the straight part of the mouth. Since it curves at the ends, it was hard to know just how to measure it. I did use it on a...

    I know the Pessoa one comes in a dee ring as I had one. And just recently sold it - sorry. I've only seen them used lately, on different tack sale groups and eBay.

    I've found the Bucas blankets work pretty well with a tail strap instead of leg straps. I don't remember that they came with a tail strap specifically, but I could add one between the back leg strap...

    I don't hold SmartPak to a different standard because of how they market themselves. No matter what business was doing the funny math, I'd want to call them out on it as it is just plain wrong.

    Depends on the horse. I have one that is IR/EMS and on limited grass turnout. He does not like to be caught since he knows that means no more grass, so he wears a breakaway Tekna halter when out. I...

    It is so cut and dried, easy to prove, nothing fuzzy about it...and yet they are confused? That's really sad. :no: Yes, to each of us, that is a piddly amount, but to SP, it certainly has to add up...

    I get what you are saying, mvp, and agree that their math is wrong if that is how they do things (take the 20% off first, then take another 5% off that remaining amount). Works out to actually being...

    I have two set up now. Originally got the first because we had seen evidence of a bear in the area, and turned out that we actually had three making the rounds last summer. This is the channel on...

    My original barn (before we added on) was about that size. More like 36x40 and then a 10' overhang (guess you could call it a lean-to) off one side. Framed with a foundation, not a pole barn, but we...

    My horse was barefoot at the time of his laminitis episode, just because he had never needed shoes and was also laid up for another lameness issue prior to this (so I'm not a barefoot aficionado, and...

    Just going to reiterate that the type of hay (orchard vs timothy vs meadow vs ....) really doesn't tell you anything about the sugars. Only testing will do that. Even teff, which is touted as low...
